CHICKPEA BOMBS

Great little balls of tasty crunchiness. I like to mix some up in my nut snack box.

1 cup Chickpeas, soaked & cooked
1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon Garam Masala or Smoked Paprika

Place chickpeas on a tray, mix in slightly warm oil (so it is in liquid form) & spice. Roast in an 180 C oven for 45 minutes. Allow to cool before packing them away.
